Librarianship and Human Rights
How’s this for inspiring?
“There is a lack of understanding about the role of librarians in society,” said Dr. Toni Samek, a professor in the School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS). “At the core, they are freedom fighters and social activists who stand for intellectual freedom.”
Hell, yeah! That’s one of the reasons I’m so glad I went to U of A. The profs there have a deep commitment to human rights and intellectual freedom. It’s nice to be reminded of my profession’s higher calling on days when I’m bogged down with annoying system errors.
I’m putting in a library purchase request for this book right away, and you might want to do the same.
